Riassunto: Karl May's most popular work, Winnetou is the story of a young Apache chief told by his white friend and bloodbrother Old Shatterhand. The action takes place about a century ago in the American Southwest, where the Indian way of life is threatened by the construction of the first transcontinental railroad. Winnetou, the only Native American chief who could have united the various quarreling tribes and reached an equitable settlement with the whites is murdered by some gold-seeking thugs. His tragic death foreshadows the death of his people.
L'autore: Karl May (1842-1912) was born in Germany to a family of poor weavers. Blind for the first six years of his life, he overcame self-doubt and despair to become one of the most successful writers of fiction in history. 70 million copies of his books have been sold in more than 20 languages. Albert Einstein remarked, ?My whole adolescence stood under May?s sign.? Albert Schweitzer, ?What I liked most in May?s writings is the courageous stand for peace and mutual understanding which inspires nearly all his books.?
